Loc Spotlight: Simone

This past weekend I spent a lot of time listening to jazz music.

As much as I love gospel, classical, soul, funk, disco, jungle, rock, R&B (circa 50's-90's) etc, my soul is with jazz music. If I could marry it, I would.

I love big bang New Orleans jazz. And I love smooth jazz (Wayman Tisdale and Euge Groove). I love jazz infused with hip-hop (Hidden Beach). I just love. jazz.

Simone, the daughter of the late and great Nina Simone, is amazing! I have been playing her album for almost a year now. Her sultry voice is different from her Mother's but the girl can bloooow.

Here's an interview with her:

And what do you know? She is also a loc rocker!

Her daughter 9-year old daughter is even loc rockin'!

Rock on Nina! Legacy passing is such a beautiful thing to me.
